Lyrics

1. INTRO - VINLAND SAGA

One thousand years ago a Viking ship
Left Norway in the spring.

Tiden er kommet,
Tiden vil vise,
Saga of Vinland,
Saga of Norsemen.

The new world they found they called Vinland,
The Land of Wine.

Tiden er kommet,
Tiden vil vise,
Saga of Vinland,
Saga of Norsemen.

Stormen forte skipet,
Vestover mot ukjent land,
Mot ukjent land.

Tiden er kommet,
Tiden vil vise,
Saga of Vinland,
Saga of Norsemen.




2. FAREWELL PROUD MEN

Look above into the misty air
I hear the waves reminding me of fear
I'm not alone but still I am confused
Will you return and will your dreams come true?

Across the sea into shallow water
Long ships' sails and sweeping oars
To walk the shores of a new land
To serve the shores of golden sand
Across the sea into shallow water
Long ships' sails and sweeping oars
To walk the shore of a new land
To serve the shores of golden sand

Farewell proud men
Spirits will guide you
May they save you
Farewell proud men

Frightening ocean sacred as the wind
I beg you please be careful with these men
At night I dream of wonders and of change
Will I receive a message from you then?

Far way from our own home
Show me a future
Open the palace door
And I will follow you




3. OCEAN'S WAY

The way of the ocean
Touch my heart like fire.
I cannot control you,
You have deeper layers.

You're alive and you're wild,
When you're nearer to me
I lean forward to touch you,
But you surprised me.

When I lean against you
I will only fall through.
Sometimes you seem to sleep,
Then a storm's coming through, through.
Fear the ocean's way.

The way of the ocean
Touch my heart like fire.
(Ocean's way)
I cannot control you,
You have deeper layers.

Ah, should I fear you?
Are you caught in anger?
(Fear the ocean's way.)
Gods cannot control you,
Winds make you go higher.

If I swim to the ground
I will need to go up.
You will turn me around
When the storm's coming through.

When the morning dawns bright
I admire the silveriness inside you.
I look into this mirror,
I look into this mirror.
Ocean's way.

The way of the ocean
Touch my heart like fire.
(Fear the ocean's way)
I cannot control you,
You have deeper layers.

Ah, should I fear you?
Are you caught in anger?
(Ocean's way.)
Gods cannot control you,
Winds make you go higher.

You're alive and you're wild,
When you're nearer to me
I lean forward to touch you,
But you surprised me.

If I swim to the ground
I will need to go up.
You will turn me around
When a storm's coming through,
When a storm's coming through.

The way of the ocean
Touch my heart like fire.
(Fear the ocean's way)
I cannot control you,
You have deeper layers.

The way of the ocean,
(Fear the oceans way)
It's the waves ruled by the winds.




4. THE CROSSING

In the fields, bequeath the beach,
I hold my shield before me:
May the Gods be with me.

North man determined not to fail,
Leave your foray behind.
Northern wind in our sails,
The crossing becomes our life.

We dive to sea beyond the mist,
The sun turns red before us:
May the Gods be with us.

North man determined not to fail,
Leave your foray behind.
Northern wind in our sails,
The crossing becomes our life.

North man determined not to fail,
Leave your foray behind.
Northern wind in our sails,
The crossing becomes our life.

Odin!

North man determined not to fail,
Leave your foray behind.
Northern wind in our sails,
The crossing becomes our life.

Odin!

North man determined not to fail,
Leave your foray behind.
(Guide me, Odin!)
Northern wind in our sails,
The crossing becomes our life.




5. INTO YOUR LIGHT

I've heard your song and
I've seen the light in your eyes,
And it took me so long to see
Straight through the night
And through you, ah...

You're the depths of my own mind
And you're the heights of my creation,
Wait for me, wait for me,
Alone but strong when you're in my sight
Your love hit me like a stroke,
Take me with you, take me with you.

Take me to that place, ah,
Where I feel so safe, aaah.
Into your light I dive.
Into your light...

Take me to that place, ah,
Where I feel so safe, aaah.
Into your light I dive.

I've taken this step and
We're intimate now, and I am,
I am joining your world,
A formation of love, and you shine
Through me.

You're the depths of my own mind
And you're the heights of my creation,
Wait for me, wait for me,
Alone but strong when you're in my sight
Your love hit me like a stroke,
Take me with you, take me with you.

Take me to that place, ah,
Where I feel so safe, aaah.
Into your light I dive.
Into your light...

Take me to that place, ah,
Where I feel so safe, aaah.
Into your light I dive.

Into your light,
Enter my mind.
Into your light,
Enter my mind.

Mermaid, medium of light
For the morning that comes,
For the orchid that grows.
Love me against all laws,
You defeated the doubt
That was stuck inside me.

Take me to that place, ah,
Where I feel so safe, aaah.
Into your light I dive.
Into your light...

Take me to that place, ah,
Where I feel so safe, aaah.
Into your light I dive.

Into your light I dive,
Into your light I dive.




6. THE THORN

I hope that he will be safe,
Hopefully return in April.
I've heard the winds speak of a fight,
And it hit my heart like a thorn.

Whispering voices appear,
I can't escape what I feel.
All I can see, all I believe in
Is connected to our kindred souls.

I feel the thorn (I feel the thorn) in my flesh,
The pounding of blood in my head.
I cry aloud (you cry aloud),
I cry of anger.
My enemy (your enemy) will never forget me.

I heard you calling my name,
I saw your colourless face.
Fire in your eyes,
Where do you go to?
I dreamt of an enemy threatening you.

I feel the thorn (I feel the thorn) in my flesh,
The pounding of blood in my head.
I cry aloud (you cry aloud),
I cry of anger.
My enemy (your enemy) will never forget me.

I feel the thorn (I feel the thorn) in you flesh,
The pounding of blood in your head.
You cry aloud (I cry),
You cry of anger.
You enemy (my enemy) will never forget you.

Hold me,
Breathe with me
Until the end of time.

I feel the thorn (I feel the thorn) in my flesh,
The pounding of blood in my head.
I cry aloud (you cry aloud),
I cry of anger.
My enemy (your enemy) will never forget me.

I feel the thorn (I feel the thorn) in you flesh,
The pounding of blood in your head.
You cry aloud (I cry),
You cry of anger.
You enemy (my enemy) will never forget you.




7. MOURNING TREE

So far away,
But still so close.
So many days
I've had to count.
The meaning of life
Comes true when I'm with you,
For in me there's a flower growing.

Tell him through the winds I am here,
Whisper through the breeze not to fear,
Taste it by the rain what I feel when you hold me.
Reach out for the winds that we share,
Then you will feel I am near,
Taste it by the snow, I am here where you left me.
I told to the mourning tree.

The long way home
Is never too far,
Unless you've reached the end of life.
My deepest wish
Comes true when I'm with you,
For in me there's a miracle growing.

Tell him through the winds I am here,
Whisper through the breeze not to fear,
Taste it by the rain what I feel when you hold me.
Reach out for the winds that we share,
Then you will feel I am near,
Taste it by the snow, I am here where you left me.
I told to the mourning tree.

Tell him through the winds I am here,
Whisper through the breeze not to fear,
Taste it by the rain what I feel when you hold me.
Reach out for the winds that we share,
Then you will feel I am near,
Taste it by the snow, I am here where you left me.
I told to the mourning tree.




8. FOR AMELIE

Why don't you feel me?
Why can't I hold your hand?
Never said that you'd leave me,
And I know you are somewhere.

I held you up
Every time you were down.
Your crying stopped
When I was around... but...

Why don't you love me
Enough to stay with me?
Now tell me truly:
Was it there in your heart too?
All that I'm left with
Is a dream of me and you.

I held you up
Every time you were down.
Your crying stopped
When I was around.

You filled my soul
With your beauty and with hope.
We're different although
We were just like water in sand.

Why don't you feel me?
Why cant I hold your hand?
You never said that you'd leave me,
And I know you are somewhere.

I held you up
Every time you were down.
Your crying stopped
When I was around.

I held you close
When you fell to the ground.
And now you've torn all my hope apart,
You could have said good-bye.




9. SKRAELINGS

Solitary houses by the fjord,
Rain is drifting in small water chains,
Silent voices talking behind walls,
Fire burning keeps us warm.

Will they come my way?
Will this change my fate?
Do they ask for friendship?
Do they speak my language?
Will they come my way?

The new sound arises from their base
And now it's rowing from the south.
Stay and swim back and forth,
Skraelings are in search for the shore.

Will they come my way?
Will this change my fate?
Do they ask for friendship?
Do they speak my language?
Will they come my way?

Usher men
In the boats,
Holding spears,
Getting close.
Swear struck, ha!
Getting low, ha!
I don't know,
Lower the swords.

Will they come my way?
Will this change my fate?
Do they ask for friendship?
Do they speak my language?
Will they come my way?




10. TEMPTATION

In my head I hear your voice,
Is this the voice of my master?
In my chest I sense a spear,
Are these the looks of my mistress?

In my head I hear your voice:
Why do I suffer?
In my chest I sense a spear:
Why cant I see you?

Have I become a bounden slave?
Shall I be lost in your spell?
What do I fear?
Is this a dream?

My bitter spirit
Has become a burden.

Lady Fear, Mistress of my dreams,
(Temptations)
Let us share body, soul and sorrows.

I rise and walk into the waves:
Will you save me?

You interrupt my intellect,
You take what you demand.

My bitter spirit
Has become a burden.

Lady Fear, Mistress of my dreams,
(Temptations)
Let us share body, soul and sorrows.

I rise and walk into the waves:
Will you save me?

You interrupt my intellect,
You take what you demand.

My bitter spirit
Has become a burden.

Lady Fear, Mistress of my dreams,
(Temptations)
Let us share body, soul and sorrows.
(Temptation)

Lady Fear, Mistress of my dreams,
(Temptations)
Let us share (temptation) body, soul and sorrows.




DISC 2

1. TALE OF THE SEAMAID

Fantasies in my head:
I drift away to all seas.
Deep, underneath the ocean,
I heard the tale of the sea maid.

All this beauty, it lights up my life.
I ride the waves to far-off seas,
And I lay on the golden sand,
I reflect the sun, I make you dream.

I glow with the silver light,
Thousand-and-one stars bright.
This laborinth of life
Takes me to your home shore.

All this beauty, it lights up my life.
I ride the waves to far-off seas,
And I lay on the golden sand,
I reflect the sun, I make you dream,
I make you dream.

All this beauty, it lights up my life.
I ride the waves to far-off seas,
And I lay on the golden sand,
I reflect the sun, I make you dream.




2. NEW FOUND LAND

(New - found - land!)

Beyond the boundaries of the known world,
Where are the mountains and where are the fjords?
Hundreds of miles off the course we are lost,
Clear skies return as we witness the shore.

We sail the see (yeah!),
We fight the storm (yeah!),
One hundred men caught by endless passion.
Adventure Norse Men (new),
A hunting eye (found),
One hundred men on a holy mission (land).

My arms are tired and my feet are cold,
Hoping for shelter and hungry for food.
My eyes see fire, a gift from the gods,
What will we find at the end of the world.

We sail the see (yeah!),
We fight the storm (yeah!),
One hundred men caught by endless passion.
Adventure Norse Men (new),
A hunting eye (found),
One hundred men on a holy mission (land).

We have found new land.

We set sail for Greenland,
As we crossed the oceans
Awaiting the Midgard serpent,
We finally found a new world.

We sail the see (yeah!),
We fight the storm (yeah!),
One hundred men caught by endless passion.
Adventure Norse Men (new),
A hunting eye (found),
One hundred men on a holy mission (land).

We have found new land,
I see new found land.
(New - found - land!)




3. LEAVES' EYES

Summer goes, winter comes.
Leaves fall on frozen grounds.
True love lasts forever,
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses.

Moonlight, you keep me safe at night,
And I know you're here if I fall.

Seasons change, spirits wake up.
Birds fly away to far-away homes.
True love lasts forever,
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses.

Moonlight, you keep me safe at night,
And I know you're here if I fall.
Starlight, show me the way in the dark,
And I know you're here when I call.

Leaves' eyes.
Leaves' eyes.

Children grow up,
Parents grow old,
Man's wives become mothers to sons.
Sunna hides,
Mani glows,
Stars are watching over us.

Moonlight, you keep me safe at night,
And I know you're here if I fall.
Starlight, show me the way in the dark,
And I know you're here when I call.




4. SOLEMN SEA

Seil den sterke sjø solen
Har gått ned i det vide havet.
I det mørke dypet hviler
En drøm om et ukjent land.

The music of your heartbeat brightens me,
Brightens me.
Turn my fears into hope,
Oceans of blue.

Darkening sky, the shadows fall,
Foaming waves shatter us,
I cry aloud into the sky,
Solemn sea, save me.

Solemn sea (solemn sea),
Save me!

Watch and wait for the next
Attacking wave, ice-cold rain,
The black mirror of the sea
Watching me, save me!

The humming of the waves frightens me,
Frightens me.
Turn my fears into hope,
Oceans of blue.

A thunder storm roars at me,
My body shakes in the rain,
Lightening rays spearing me,
A thousand spears haunting me.

Solemn sea (solemn sea),
Save me!
Solemn sea (solemn sea),
Save me!

Watch and wait for the next
Attacking wave, ice-cold rain,
The black mirror of the sea
Watching me, save me!

Seil den sterke sjø solen
Har gått ned i det vide havet.
I det mørke dypet hviler
En drøm om et ukjent land.

Solemn sea (solemn sea),
Save me!
Solemn sea (solemn sea),
Save me!

Watch and wait for the next
Attacking wave, ice-cold rain,
The black mirror of the sea
Watching me, save me!

6. NORWEGIAN LOVESONG

I grew up by the sea,
I played under the sun.
Come to me come, into my dreams:
This is my light of life.

Between the bluebells
Sits a girl with blond braids,
A blue-eyed angel
With strawberry cheeks.
The spell has bound me,
I was living a dream.
Norwegian homeland,
My heart belongs to you.

The spell has bound me,
I was living a dream.
Norwegian homeland,
My heart belongs to you.

I climbed mountains so high,
I discovered the deep,
Long to be, long to be part of this dream:
This is where my heart beats.

Between the bluebells
Sits a girl with blond braids,
A blue-eyed angel
With strawberry cheeks.
The spell has bound me,
I was living a dream.
Norwegian homeland,
My heart belongs to you.

The spell has bound me,
I was living a dream.
Norwegian homeland,
My heart belongs to you.

Between the bluebells
Sits a girl with blond braids,
A blue-eyed angel
With strawberry cheeks.
The spell has bound me,
I was living a dream.
Norwegian homeland,
My heart belongs to you.

The spell has bound me,
I was living a dream.
Norwegian homeland,
My heart belongs to you.




7. LYSET

Lyset er evig,
Lyset er livet,
Gjennom årtusener,
Gjennom vegger.

Avskjed frå mørket,
Avskjed frå dypet.
Sol, sterner, måne
Evige fakler.

Lyset er vakkert,
Lyset er veien,
Gjennom stormer,
Gjennom kriger.




8. LEGEND LAND

We headed west,
To legend land,
Up river to
Set feet on soil.
Smell morning dew
On stubborn grass,
Found grapes and vines
And sweet temptation.

Keeps me alive (keeps me alive),
In my legend land I still feel how close
We are and will be.
Legend land, a piece you left,
A piece of promise and hope.

For you and me,
Eternity
Appears to me,
From Asgard sent.

Shining through
Any time barrier,
Like wild flowers will
To stay alive,
To divide the stone,
To break through.

Legend land, I still feel how close
We are and will be, ah.
Legend land, a piece you left,
A piece of promise and hope.

In my dreams a Legend land,
A piece of promise and hope,
In my heart, keeps me alive...

Legend land, I still feel how close
We are and will be.
Legend land, a piece you left,
A piece of promise and hope.
(My legend land)

Legend land (legend land),
We are and will be...
Legend land (legend land), a piece you left,
A piece of promise and hope.




9. ELEGY

Teardrop on a fragile eyelash,
She's looking like a dream,
Hoping for some understanding,
An answer or at least
A calming word, a single sentence
To restore her heart,
Aching since the day I left her
Crossing lonely seas.

Silent tears of a woman
Make a warrior cry.
Heaven, I beg you:
Please, release hopes from fears.

This is my elegy.
Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy.
Do you believe it's real?
Will I hold you in my arms again?

Dewdrops on a single rosebud,
This purity of rain,
Reminds me of the moment I left her,
Kisses filled with pain.
And if I should leave her waiting
For another year
Will she ever know the answer,
Will she follow me?

Silent tears of a woman
Make a warrior cry.
Heaven, I beg you:
Please, release hopes from fears.

This is my elegy.
Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy.
Do you believe it's real?
Will I hold you in my arms,
Hold you in my arms again?

A calming word, a single sentence
To restore her heart,
Aching since the day I left her
Crossing lonely seas.

Silent tears of a woman
Make a warrior cry.
Heaven, I beg you:
Please, release hopes from fears.

This is my elegy.
Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy.
Do you believe it's real?

This is my elegy.
(This is my, this is my...)
Do you know what I feel?
(This is my, this is my) elegy
Do you believe it's real?
Will I hold you in my arms again?




10. OUTRO - MOT FJERNE LAND

(Instrumental)
